Before you start building apps with Mobincube you should get familiar with our interface. These are the main elements of it:
- Status bar.
- Horizontal menu.
- Help side bar.
- Edition side toolbar.
The status bar is located at the top of the screen in all the sections of Mobincube. From this bar you can access some properties of your account.
On the right side of the bar you’ll see your username. It you click on it, a menu will appear that gives you this information:
- Disc space in Mobincube available for your apps without ads.
- Type of account that you have.
From this menu you can also do this:
- Upgrade/downgrade your account.
- Access your account’s settings area.
- Change the language of the interface.
- Access your users panel in case you are a reseller of Mobincube.
Once you access one of your apps, you’ll find a horizontal menu just below the status bar. This menu provides access to other sections of Mobincube:
- My apps
You can go back to the list of your apps. Just click on the icon at the left side in order to access that list.
From this section you can edit some general properties of your app (icon, title, description, language, etc.), and also activate/deactivate all services available in Mobincube for your app.
This section is where you really build your app: content, design, structure, etc.
This section gives you instructions to test your app on a real device (Android or iOS) before making your app public. This is useful to check that your app works as you expected and decide if you want to make some changes.
From here you will be able to publish your app, so anyone can download it through the URL that Mobincube provides. You can also download binary files (APK, IPA or XAP) so that you can publish your app in your favorite App stores.
This section provides access to some additional tools available: monetization, push notifications panel, Cloud (online content manager), Google Analytics and private brand.
Help side bar
On the left border of the screen you can find two buttons that will help you:
It gives you access to our support center, where you can find tutorials and some articles that will help you build your apps with Mobincube, publish them, monetize them, etc.
In case you experience some technical problems with our website, your apps, etc., you can open a support ticket and our team will try to solve your problem.
Edition side toolbar
When you are editing one app, you’ll find some tabs on the right side of the screen. If you click on them, some toolbars will appear. These are the 5 tabs you will find:
- List of screens
From here you can access all the screens in your app so that you can edit them. You can also add new screens, rename, make copies or delete your screens.
- App properties
From this toolbar you can edit some properties of your app: resources, colors, etc.
- Screen properties
From this toolbar you can edit some properties of the screen that you are editing. The properties you assign to one screen will have more priority than those assigned to the whole app.
- View properties
When you are editing a database type screen, you can access this toolbar in case you want to edit some properties of the database’s view.
This tab will spread a html simulator of the screen you are editing, so you can preview how it will look on a mobile device. It is only a html simulation, so it will have lower quality than the real native app.
